I was not really affected by the death of Mr. Steve Jobs until the other day when I got an E-mail from him — about a week after he passed. Well, clearly it could not have been from him — he’s in an important meeting right now, I’m sure — but rather someone at Apple cleaning up his affairs.
As many might know, Steve did not believe in putting many layers between him and his customers. For several years well into his worldwide fame, anyone could E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. And for about six years now, that addy and another that led to his inbox have been on my mailing list along with the other 14,000 (+/-) of you all.
It seems he’s carrying this policy of staying in touch, even in the after life.
